My dad has been safely moved into assisted living. He seems to like it. It has somewhat reduced my stress without having to worry about my aunt and him being too much for her. There was no way he could go home by himself so this seemed to best solution.
DD is currently in Madrid. She had a great time in Dresden, Germany. She is under strict instructions to be in touch with us at least once a day. So far she's doing pretty well. I have lots of lovely pictures of buildings in both Germany and Spain. Here is the lady she is staying with in Madrid. She found a hosting situation on a website. She has been emailing back and forth in Spanish since she signed up and is very proud of herself and how she is making use of her High School Spanish. She loves paella and was excited when she got home after a day of sight seeing and this was dinner. I also have a great picture of her holding it, but she wouldn't let me post it. She claims I always choose the worst pictures of her to post,
but I like pictures that are more candid and she only likes posed ones.
Now that some things are a little more settled I actually got some time to sew yesterday. We are in month 4 of Jo's club and I finally got the top for the first project together. If you want to feel totally inadequate you should join my Jo's club. The second meeting we had one person who had made 3 complete quilts in different coloration's from this pattern. I am just happy to have the top to mine finished. I can't wait to add it to my mini quilt wall.
